Kerala to honour Indian medallists of Rio Olympics

Kerala is all set to honour badminton player PV Sindhu and Indian female wrestling medallist, Sakshi Malik by inviting them to the ninth edition of the Kerala Travel Mart (KTM) which will be inaugurated on September 27. KTM is the largest gathering of tourism stakeholders in the state and is organized by the KTM Society in association with the Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala – runs from September 28-30. The duo is also invited by the state to come and enjoy the state’s scenic beauty.

“This invitation to see the very best of what Kerala has to offer with carefully tailored tour itineraries across the state is our way of thanking the country’s newest sporting heroes for doing us proud. We’ll pull out all stops to ensure their stay here will be as memorable as their performances,” said KTM Society

From the healing touch of authentic Ayurvedic therapies to the peace and quiet of a hill station, a tranquil cruise along the backwaters or enjoying splendid unspoilt beaches, the champion athletes are assured of some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

“Besides the stresses faced by high-performance athletes, the rigorous training they would have put in over the past few years in the run-up to the Olympics, Kerala will be the ideal destination for them to recoup their strength. Our much-sought after Ayurvedic massages, in particular, will aid in their rejuvenation,” George added.

The presence of Olympian medallists at the KTM will add lustre to the growing appeal of the biennial tourism industry conclave, which expects to see some 560 international delegates and over 1,300 domestic buyers in attendance.
